This December's Art Elements theme is --all things Christmas. You can use any medium you feel inspires you. This time of year, I love to make handmade ornaments and gifts. I also made it a goal to cut down on waste in wrapping and tags.
I feel that reusing and recycling is becoming more important every day. In my last blog about gourds, I talked about putting my pumpkins outside for the animals to eat and to keep them out of the landfill. I did this and to my surprise when I returned to see the pumpkins, the ones that I had cut open when placed in the woods were completely eaten. There was nothing left. The pumpkin in the above photo was originally whole when left outside. Currently, you can see some animals worked hard to get into it and I am sure they will return and finish it off.
